Abstract:

The report describes a case of unilateral (right) horn cancer in a humped bullock of age 18 years. The horn was bent downwards and was soft at the base. Radiography in frontal view revealed soft tissue density in the affected cornual sinus compared to air in the normal horn. The affected horn was surgically amputated and the sinuses were thoroughly flushed using suction under general anesthesia. The bullock recovered uneventfully from anesthesia. Telephonic follow up upto 10th postoperative day revealed the bullock to be healthy but, the condition deteriorated slowly and the bullock died within 20 days. Histopathology confirmed the condition to be squamous cell carcinoma of horn.
